Why You Should Attend This Year's Summit:

The Military Services have identified vehicle modernization as a key priority as the U.S. faces a variety of threats in an era of strategic competition. The Services are upgrading ground systems and leveraging advanced technologies to strengthen tactical vehicles to enable the Warfighter to operate and maneuver across all domains, specifically land, for future large-scale combat operations.

The 2023 Military Vehicle Systems Summit will convene senior level experts and decision-makers for in-depth discussions on efforts to deliver tactical vehicles that are more effective, efficient, cost-effective, and allow for greater maneuverability and lethality. The event will also feature a panel that will discuss the development and implementation of autonomous vehicles into the future battlefield. Attendees at this event will have the unique opportunity to examine how the Miliary Services in partnership with industry are transforming combat vehicles and ground system technologies to enable a strategic war-fighting advantage in the future battlefield.

Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summit's content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the engineering and acquisition communities as well as key policy-makers across military and civilian offices.
